World Development book links: Health and Development

The links to articles from newspaper and magazine web sites that are given below are intended as a source of current information that will help research into development issues and they could also be used for the article analysis coursework that is part of the World Development A level course. No list is definitive and the intention is to develop this gradually as a resource for anybody interested in global development.

The articles are loosely categorized using the general headings in the text book but their content is often very broad. - The web site is a good place to find information about health reforms in the US. - UNHCR web site. This story is about a water project for Somali refugees in Ethiopia but there are links to other items as well. - A 2010 UNICEF report on progress towards providing global access to sanitation and drinking water. - A UNICEF report on maternal, newborn and child survival with reference to the 2015 MDGs. - an article by Annie Kelly about healthcare in Uganda which is part of the series of articles about Katine – a Ugandan village which was ‘adopted’ by the Guardian to focus on development issues.
